Sheltie Puppy Development in Pictures

Sheltie puppies go through rapid developments after birth, maturing into adult dogs by 1-2 years. Check out these adorable developmental stages.

Newborn Sheltie puppies are completely vulnerable. Their eyes are closed, they can't hear and they even need help from mom to pee and poop.

101 Cute Sheltie Puppies

All puppies are adorable. That's a fact. But the Shetland Sheepdog puppy - with his big floppy ears, beautiful almond eyes and silky soft fur - knows how to be deliberately cute on demand.

How To Photograph Your Dog

One of the reasons I made Sheltie Planet was because I had so many photos of Howard and Piper I wanted to share. I love being able to capture those special moments forever, and in this article I share my top pet photography tips so you can get some great shots of your Sheltie that you treasure.

When we got Howard as a puppy I was eager to snap away at this beautiful little bundle. The more photos I took of any given scene, the more likely I was to get the perfect shot. At the same time, I learned what to look for in a good photo based on the results I liked best. So the easiest way to improve your pet photography skills is with hands-on practice and experimentation, and you’ll get a lot of great photos to boot.

That said, there are some basic ground rules for taking good photos, especially when small, fast-moving fluffballs are involved... [continue reading How To Photograph Your Dog]
